We Live in Interesting Times

In what was ultimately no surprise, Erik Dickerson wins the Republican primary for Congressional District 7. Julia Carson (Tully reports) presented her Congressional ID to vote which isn't a valid ID since it has no expiration date. The inspector let her vote anyway. How's that for a technicality? It will be interesting to see how the GOP embraces him now.

And in an upset that almost everyone missed, Sen Pro Tem John Garton was upset in his primary race by a guy who thinks public flogging is OK with him. I know there were a lot of politics happening in that race, but that whole thing is just weird.

And, by the way, the Chinese have absolutely no idea what we're talking about with the "ancient curse" of "May he live in interesting times."

Bob Garton's ouster is further evidence that the social conservatives are running the show in Indiana's Republican Party. Expect more time spent on mixing church and state and less time on Main Street business initiatives.
